Nikki G. Dodson Cancer Treatment

In September of 2017, a healthy 56 year old Nikki Goodson Dodson, woke up  blind in one eye, completely out of the blue and having never had an issue like this before. She began undergoing months of  testing, CT scans, and multiple doctor's appointments; still without any clear answers. Christmas night she became so weak and disoriented she could not stand up. Her daughter, Cayla, was called at work and rushed her to TMH.  She was diagnosed with  CNS lymphoma, with a brain tumor on her frontal lobe the size of a lemon.  She was immediately started on a high dose of steroids and radiation and is now awaiting chemo. Nikki is an extremely strong -willed independent woman, anyone who knows her knows this, but right now she is completely dependent on her family.  Nikki received notification that as of February 28, 2018 she will be terminated from her job and her health insurance will end which will require her to purchase COBRA Insurance until further options are available .  This will be tough within itself not having any income coming in.  Treatment requires that she be taken to Tallahassee, FL (she lives in Bainbridge, GA) every other week for 7 days straight, for possibly the next 23 weeks. This will cause a heavy burden both emotionally and financially on Nikki and her family.  She is an extremely hard worker and is very proud and would not dream of asking for help, so I am asking for her.  Nikki is usually giving and helping  others rather than being on the receiving end.  She needs our help.  No gift is too small and if all you have is prayers and positive thoughts , then please send those.  Thank you.
